phil1959-04-05d1t01 is entitled "Finnegan's Awake" and the corresponding file on the earlier upload was Track 3, phil59-04-05d1t03.flac. This track was lowered 3 semitones, and I resynched the left and right tracks to reduce a funky flanging sound. Phil plays lead trumpet on this track.
phil1959-04-05d1t02 is entitled "Wail Frail" (per Dennis McNally's book) and the corresponding file on the earlier upload was Track 2, phil59-04-05d1t02.flac. This one was lowered about 1 semitone and the left and right tracks resynched. According to the spoken introduction, Phil does not actually play on this track, choosing to sit out so he can listen to this debut performance.
Both tracks are now in the key of B-flat, a favorite key of many brass players. I am not sure that this is the correct key, but the announcer on the two tracks now sounds like the same person, a human male who has not just inhaled a large quantity of helium.
